Another high point in the movie was when the narrator was talking about the rich 'American heritage' shown in the area, and then it switched to a picture of a billboard for a Noel Coward play. As you may recall, Noel Coward is rather... English.

Overall, I thought the whole cotton angle is oddly undersold - it's almost stealth marketing, considering how little the product is actually mentioned. I wonder if it worked?

I think as far as marketing cotton, this film fell totally flat. It was already out of style when it came out in '69. Remember, the '70's was the Polyester Decade. People thought polyester was wonderful because it didn't have to be ironed.
